Question about Sanyo DVW-5000 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Overheating/ shut down

My dvd player will turn on and run for no longer than 5 minutes until it shuts down and power quits running through the player. I removed the top panel and placed my hand one silver block or column- possibly this is called a contacter- I dunno- anyway it's ridiculously hot. If this tremendous overheating is what's causing my player to shut down what can I do?

THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR IS MALFUNCTIONING, THE ONLY SOLUTION WOULD BE TO GET IT REPAIRED IF ITS UNDER WARRANTY. IF NOT ITS CHEAPER TO BUY A NEW ONE

Hi I have a Sanyo Convection Microwave EM-C5779V and when the timer goes off the fan seems to continue to run and won't turn off when I hit the cancel button and have to turn it off at the wall.Help?


the fan may keep running to keep it from overheating until it cools down, if you let it go and it shuts down eventually should be no problem, maybe 3 to 5 minutes it should shut down. fan running is not dangerous however if it never stops then the fan will wear out

When I plug the unit into power, the CPU fan runs very fast but no boot, and then when I press power on the fan slows down and the PC boots normally. It shuts down in about 30 minutes with no sign of...


Sounds like you are overheating. One way to tell if it's overheating is you say it will run for about 30 minutes then shuts down. When it shuts down try rebooting to see if the boots successfully. If it fails to boot successfully right after it shut down then you are probably overheating. If you wait awhile to let it cool down for 30 minutes or so and if you reboot and it does it successfully you definitely have a overheating problem. If I remember correctly all those compaq sr series have loud and fast running fans. Computers overheat because of three reasons for the most part: 1) A fan has stopped working. 2) The Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is not thick enough to keep the unit cool. 3) Dust has clogged the fan vents and inside the computer. Fortunately for you desktops don't have to be completely disassembled like laptops to get to the fan, CPU and heatsink. Just pop the case and you'll see the components attached to the motherboard

Hi,

The unit may be overheating and shutting down to protect itself.

Please check the fan grills and make sure they are not clogged up with dust as can often happen to amps and receivers. If that is the case then a vacuum cleaner can be used to remove the dust.

If the unit is inside a cabinet try running it outside the cabinet. If it runs for longer before shutting down then this would indicate that it is overheating.

I had the same problem with my Sony home theater amp/dvd and cleaning out the dust cured the problem.

Please rate my answer if this helps.

Many thanks,

Chris

Assorted users have had issues with the chargers and batteries on these units. Check that any air vents that go to the electric powerhead are clean and clear. It could be getting overheated and shutting down.

My dvd home theatre system ht tx75 keeps shutting down


protection error message means that your unit's fan is not working

it is a feature to keep your unit from overheating

check if there is anything blocking the fan of your unit from rotating

if problem still persist replace the fan

This dvd/vcr unit is having a problem with component failure. It is probably in the main power supply section, since the unit shuts down. This can happen in these products due to the qulaity of component use in the product runs. The components usually have 5% to 10% failure rate. Which is usually taken care of by the product warranty. Unfornately this is a common problem with big manufactuers and large production runs. You need to have the unit tested and serviced at a service center. The service center will have all the service information to repair you unit. The Magnavox Customer support telephone is 1-800-605-8453. Tell them the model number of you unit and about the problem with the unit shutting down during use. They will be able to tell how to your unit serviced. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Come on, boots up, then shuts down 5 - 10 minutes later.


check your power options make sure you don't have hibernation enabled, its in the system control panel. try booting from a linux live cd like Ubuntu which you can download for free. If it runs fine under linux, its a windows problem, if it keeps shutting down its a hardware problem. Could be bad ram, or CPU overheating.

The power shuts off after a few minutes


There could be several factors. Are there any indication or failure lights/codes prior to the unit shutting down? You didn't mention where the unit is located. Does it initially start to read the disc then shut down or is there no activity at all? Please respond with some additional info & we'll go from there.
